    The silos can be hard to get to. If anyone is up there, you'll be kicked out for sure. I've only been there once, and seen them. I swear people can pop up out of nowhere out there.

    as far as the old house, I think it's public land. I know they don't want you off roading up there, but I've hiked up there numerous times without any issues.

    But you've never detected up there? How old does it look? Late 1800's or more 1950'ish?

    It's got cinder block walls. I'd bet probably 1950. I haven't detected anything at all. Ever. My dad said I can borrow his detector (it's just catching dust) so, I want to start going. I'd just like to go with some people who know what they're doing first. I haven't the slightest clue about the right way or wrong way to detect. I don't even know how high you're supposed to hold it off the ground while you swing it

    What kind of detector is it? How old are you anyway?

    I have no idea what kind of detector it is. All I know is that it detects metal . I'll find out more when I go pick it up. I'm 25. How about yourself?

    I'm 30. When you get your hands on the detector, let me know what kind it is. I would like to get a plan going to hunt out in the area. I have a buddy who says he'd be interested too. He's down in San Diego and we have had a few tips for some interesting things out there. That might have to wait for a future trip. Get that detector and let's go try to check out the points on the map you found! We need to contact the BLM to make sure it's public land first. If not, we need to try to get permission to detect. Otherwise if we happen to find something good, we won't get to keep it.

    There's a small section on my Google Earth that has cloud cover cropped into it. Can you check out Ghost Mountain and tell me if you have cloud cover there as well?

    Yeah, that cloud seems a little bit intentional for some reason. You can make it go away though. Click on the clock, and drag the pointer that pops up back to June 6 2009. The cloud will go away.

    Re: Anybody know the history of Hemet?

    Oh cool, thanks. They have some pictures described as a view from an old cabin there but I don't see the cabin. I kinda wonder if something was found up there or if they're working on something and put the cloud cover over it for whatever reason. I'll probably check it out in a week or two.

    as far as that old house goes, It may be on BLM land. I think it's in the territory of Gibbel Park, but I'm not absolutely certain about that.
    If it falls into square 25, I don't know who's land that is. If it falls into square 30, I believe that green area is BLM land.
    Here's the link I found for that.

    It's located north of Crow Road so I'm thinking it's in 26. We'll need to contact BLM to check but if private property, we can always try to get permission. Most people are pretty accommodating about it so it shouldn't be too hard.

    Hey custom,

    I got that detector, it's a bounty hunter land star. I decided to try it in my back yard. My GF hid three pennies, a dime, a nickel and a quarter out there. I found the quarter and one penny out of that...

    There's several new holes in my grass that I'm going to have to seed now

    Out of twelve holes I dug, I found

    1 piece of steel trash
    1 piece of what I believe is aluminium ( came up as a quarter on the MD)
    2 weird round things that I think used to belong to a wind chime
    2 toy cars.

    That's a 50% success rate!

    Not bad for my first time MDing. Hopefully next time I can find a couple of pennies or something. What a pain in the neck it is digging a hole, and trying to find a small disk in there.

    it was fun though. Tomorrow, I'm gonna hit the park by the riverbed and see what happens

    Awesome! Make sure you keep all your finds. I have a bag full of crap that I've dug up. How old is the detector? Where did you get your technique from?

    I have no idea how old it is. I'll do some internet research and try to find out. I'm guessing probably 10-15 years old.

    Technique? Ummm I just swung it around until it made noise. Then I changed the noise it was making to disk, and it made it a little easier to dial in on whatever was in the dirt. I'm sure there's better ways, but that was the first time I've used it, and there wasn't anyone around to guide me
